Product description

Review

The ideas that shaped our present political system are emereged from our past political thinkers and leaders who desigened the frame in which we are flourishing today. This book clearly mention the views and stands of post independent thinkers and leaders. Clearly mention the stand of Congress towards secular state, hindu and muslim ideologies, one can say that this book is little anti-RSS and pro congress in character, sometimes you can find that author is trying to defend the congress national and foreign policies, but actually the account of Bipin Chandra gives you detailed facts and figure about every positive and negative aspects of policies adopted by government of india after independence. This book is influenced by progressive secular literature. There is no reason to criticize this book --Pranay Singh Feb 23, 2012

well i wont shower any praises for this title its just that go for it . Many critics advise you to cling to r c guha - ind after gandhi .. it might be so but this book is structured according to the exam format which makes it effective to use as a learning guide --johnny blaze Jun 29, 2014

I think it is the most authoritative work on contemporary history.......very well laid out and easy to grasp.....yet it touches each and every aspect. Good for students and for casual reading as well. --by Harpreet Singh on 14 April 14
